Happy Western Pascha!
« on: March 30, 2013, 05:22:15 PM »
To all of you, who are either Roman Catholic, Protestant, or other users of Gregorian calendar - Happy Pascha!

A bit of early, but tomorrow you people are going to be quite busy, I guess :).

Christ is Risen to Finnish Orthodox, Estonian Orthodox, Malankara Indian Orthodox, Assyrian COE, Roman Catholic, Maronite, and Protestant Christians.

Do Western Orthodox Christians celebrate Pascha today? If so, then Christ is Risen to you also!

AFAIK, all Western Rite Orthodox are on the traditional Orthodox paschalion. As are now all the Estonians.

If you spend long enough on this forum, you'll come away with all sorts of weird, untrue ideas of Orthodox Christianity.

I would suggest most persons in general avoid any question beginning with why.

Kristus nousi kuolleista!

Quote
Archbishop Leo
Easter greeting 2013

Beloved hierarchs, fathers, brothers and sisters in Christ!

Christ is Risen!

Today and in the coming weeks we will be proclaiming over and over again “Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and upon those in the tombs bestowing light!”

During the Easter season the Church invites us to follow in the footsteps of the disciples who set out to proclaim the risen Christ. It was not an easy path for them to pursue, for it was strewn with unbelief, dangers and setbacks. Few were prepared at the outset to accept the Gospel claim that the fullness of time had been reached and the Kingdom of God was at hand (Mark 1:15).

Read the rest here.
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
Leviticus 19:34

Christus resurrexit!
"For, by its immensity, the divine substance surpasses every form that our intellect reaches. Thus we are unable to apprehend it by knowing what it is. Yet we are able to have some knowledge of it by knowing what it is not." - St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa contra gentiles, I, 14.
